Last week, I took Sweetpea camping.
Stop laughing. I'm serious.
Her bestie's family owns a motor home and invited us to go along for a day! How could I pass up an opportunity for Sweets to have a "sleepover"?!? Honestly, I think she's too young for sleepovers but this was PERFECT! I would be right there - along with her friend's Mom and one of MY besties and HER kids - who are also best buds with Sweets!
In all, there FOUR Mommies and EIGHT kids. Yes - we were outnumbered!!
And we had a BLAST!
It was so incredibly fun! We did crafts. The kids played. We relaxed. We went swimming. We roasted hot dogs over the fire for dinner. Then we roasted marshmallows and made s'mores that night.
That was a BIG treat for Sweets! She rarely gets to snack on marshmallows! Just look at that happy face!
My friend, her daughter, Sweets and myself all slept in one pull out bed. Her son, who is the same age as Sweets, slept up on the bunk above us. Apparently, they are "boyfriend" and "girlfriend". Hmmm... J is unhappy about this!
"No. Sweets, What I really wish is that you didn't have diabetes."
"Yeah. I wish that, too."
My friend and I stopped motionless in our tracks and looked at each other. *Tears* So incredibly sweet.
We are so blessed with wonderful friends!
Even so, we really could use that wish right now.
